A Prayer for Guidance
Rachael’s mother has just died and her father is worried about his youngest daughter. At sixteen she is just about to embark on her Rumspringa. Having already formed a strong attachment to a thoughtful young man called Isaac, she is less than thrilled by her father’s belief that she should spend this time with her aunt Martha and Cousin Sarah who live in an Amish community by the Coast. But after much persuasion she agrees to the visit, despite her misgivings and feelings for Isaac. Perhaps she will enjoy her time with Sarah, who is a year older than Rachael, halfway through her own Rumspringa and more worldly wise and rebellious than herself. She guesses she will find out soon enough!
They meet a group of Englisch boys and Rachael starts to fall for one particular boy called Mike and so begins a greater inner turmoil than she has ever known. She quickly realizes that this battle between Isaac and Mike for space in her heart in so many ways is just a reflection of a much deeper questioning of her very faith, beliefs and way of life.
It is in the midst of this inner conflict at this pivotal time in her life that Rachael prays for guidance. Is her place to be in this exciting new world, experiencing it all alongside Mike? Or should she return and profess her love and admiration for Isaac, who has always been there?
Find out how Rachael’s prayers are answered in the most unlikely of ways and how her faith ultimately helps her find clarity in the midst of her heart’s greatest confusion…
